How to Choose a Colorado Closed Adoption
By David Seamonson
Private adoption Colorado narrows down to three options: Open, semi-open, and closed adoption. Each one of these options offers different benefits to birth mothers and determines how the adoption process will begin and how the result of the adoption plan will end up. To help you know more about one of the adoption types, we at Adoption Choices of Colorado will focus specifically on closed adoption, what it allows for each side of the adoption process to do, and what responsibilities they will have.
A closed adoption is the only adoption option that leaves each side of the adoption unknown to the other. This means that you will not get to meet the adopting family, but you will be able to select them.

What is a Colorado Closed Adoption?
A closed adoption is a choice to not have any future contact with your child after the adoption process is completed. Many birth mothers choose this option. They want to remain out of their child’s lives because they could be seen as a burden. This could also be because birth mothers want to move on with their lives. Whatever your reason for selecting a closed adoption is up to you, but the decision is final when the adoption plan is set and both sides agree to the terms.
Unlike an open or semi-open adoption, you will not be able to see your child again, which is something that birth mothers seem to fear. Regardless, we will help you through this decision and help you find a great family that would love to take care of your child and love them as their own.
Will I be able to Select the Adoptive Family?
Regardless of which adoption option you pick, you can choose the adopting family since we want you to have as much control over the process as possible. You will have multiple families shown to you by the adoption agencies that give profiles on each family. These families have also selected the closed adoption option to understand your needs. Unfortunately, you will not be able to see the names of the family members. Still, you will be able to see the household research that shows some of their interests, such as Religion, age, professions, general location of their home, and many other things to help you feel comfortable about your choice in adoption.
Throughout this process, you will be able to have certain care provided to you, such as emotional support with our adoption experts, financial support for hospital visits, and comfort knowing that you can move on after the pregnancy. Adoption Choices of Colorado is here to help you through a Private adoption in Colorado and make a closed adoption an easy decision for you to make.
What the Process is Like for the Adoptive Family
From the view of an adopting family, this can be a great opportunity. They will submit their response to a series of household questions to help you decide whether they are a good fit for your child, and then they will be put into the system to be shown to you. When a family is looking into closed adoption, they are on the same page as you. They do not want to be in contact with the birth mother because they want their child to be their own. This may come from the fear that you would come back to take your baby back which is why this option fits them so well.
When the birth mother has chosen the adoption family, they will work with the adoption agency to finalize the adoption plan. They will follow that plan until the pregnancy is over, and then they will become the official parents of the child.
Choosing a Closed Adoption with Adoption Choices of Colorado
While this is the form of adoption that most people know about, it certainly is not the only one. Closed adoptions are beneficial to birth mothers in a place where they are not certain how their lives will turn out. They do not know if they would have been able to take care of their baby, and we want to provide the best security we can. A closed adoption is one of the best ways to leave the past behind you and to allow the adopting family peace of mind where they know their baby will always be theirs.
